Studying for the AICP exam can be an overwhelming process, but even trying to apply for it is daunting.

To become an AICP certified planner, applicants must complete a Planning Experience Assessment Worksheet to describe and explain how their professional experiences align with the criteria. Understanding how to write these responses in a way that the AICP Exam application committee will approve can be difficult. But we've done it ourselves, and helped many AICP hopefuls get their essays approved on the first submission! Let us help you.

We will read and provide our feedback on your responses to make sure your application for the AICP exam best reflects your experience while also satisfying the requirements of the application committee. 

Did you know you have to pay each time you apply or register for the exam? Yikes! That can add up. It can be between $270-$360 for each application submission so don’t waste your money and get it right the first time by having your planning experience essays peer-reviewed.

Instead of starting your application by scratch, use this guide to help you navigate the overwhelming AICP application process. Our AICP Exam Application Guide will make writing the Planning Experience Assessment Worksheet a breeze. We break down each criterion to show you exactly what APA is looking for in your responses. Plus we share all the tips that got us accepted on our very first try, including comments we got from FAICP members ourselves! We walk you through how to get started and how to respond to the eligibility criteria using a worksheet, too!
